About This Guide

This bibliography is number 90 in the series “Bibliographies in Gender and Women’s Studies,” published by the University of Wisconsin System Office of the Gender and Women’s Studies Librarian.

This guide is focused on the fight for Black women’s suffrage. On it, you will find resources about African American women in the suffrage movement and tips for finding more. You may find some general resources regarding Black men’s suffrage as well, which are included to provide helpful context and because of the lack of known resources about Black women’s suffrage more specifically.

In addition to resources such as books and articles, this guide includes a list of people central to the struggle and a timeline. Navigate through the pages via the menu on the right.

More resources are being uncovered all the time so be sure to come back often! And if you have suggestions for additions or updates, please contact Karla Strand.
